's bring in former state department spokesman p.j. crowley and michael crowley and washington post diplomatic correspondent ann biernan. thank you all for being here. p.j., i want to start with you and this announcement by president obama that washington is canceling the joint military operations. how significant is that decision? does it carry any weight whatsoever? >> i'm sure it will be heard loud and clear by the egyptian military. how they respond to that, we'll have to see. i think the administration's challenge right now is not only what message it sends to the egyptian military, of course the president again decided not to tinker with the existing military assistance, but also what message do you send to the muslim brotherhood. do they have a mounting list of grievances. of course, the policy objective is to return to inclusive democracy. the real challenge over the next several weeks is how do you entice the muslim brotherhood that's been the victim of a coup and violence back into the political process. the end result is stronger than what was overthrown six months ago. >

controversial surveillance program. according to "the washington post," the nsa exceeded its legal authority thousands of times since 2008 with unauthorized surveillance of americans or foreign targets on u.s. soil. senate judiciary chairman pat leahy says he plans to hold another hearing on the nsa surveillance program. house speaker nancy pelosi called the report, quote, extremely disturbing in a statement saying in part, congress must conduct rigorous oversight to ensure that all incidents, all incidents of noncompliance are reported to the oversight committees and the fisa court in a timely and comprehensive manner and that appropriate steps are taken to ensure violations are not repeated. the report stems from an nsa audit obtained by the post from leaker edward snowden. kelly o'donnell joins me now. what kind of privacy violations are we talking about? >> what we're learning so far, these are not instances of eavesdropping on conversations or reading e-mails. it's not that kind of thing. it's that big sweeping data collection we've been hearing a lot about in the last few months. phone

williams joins me now live from washington. pete, i've heard a lot of people intrigued by the timeline of this. the travel alert expires august 31st. we're focused on sunday here. certainly wouldn't be isolated to a 24-hour span of time. >> no, that's been clear from the beginning, tamron, that the window on this opens on sunday, but it's pretty clear -- it was clear to us yesterday that it could go for many days, and i think you see the travel warning go through the end of august which gives you an idea that part of the problem here is that this threat information is vague about where an attack would be, what kind of plot it would be, what form it would take, what the target is. the only thing they have basically that's got any specificity at all is the timeline, but based on this information, the embassy -- or the state department now is closing the embassies on sunday that you see on the map here that would normally be open. then the question is, will they go beyond that when they get to monday and tuesday if they can't -- haven't nailed this down any further. in ed royce's appearan
republican senator lindsey graham said, quote, americans in washington -- we're going to take you now to cleveland, ohio, where we're hearing an update now following the sentencing of ariel castro. >> you heard from them and their representatives. we will always be inspired. the law enforcement was dedicated to find these women. they never gave up. they looked and they searched and no one was -- other than the family, of course, was more relieved or happy than these individual law enforcement officers. so i want to thank the law enforcement officers for their faith and their willingness to continue. i want to give my heart felt thanks to the cleveland police to the chief calvin williams represented here. chief mcgrath is in another meeting, emergency matter. the second one here is the fbi. the fbi has has been tremendous in all aspects of this case. they worked with the cleveland police and the sheriff's office and bci from start to finish and i want to thank the agent in charge, special agent in charge, steve anthony of the fbi representing a tremendous group, not just here in clevel
's taking place very heatedly here in washington, d.c. of course, it's also responsible for nixing a summit with russia. when you really think about the domino effect this entire edward snowden situation has had, it's quite remarkable. essentially, about half this press is going to be about things that sort of started with the edward snowden release of this information. >> it's a large threat that has unraveled so many different things, chuck. when you talk about the president and the nsa, obviously that's to our domestic audience, to rebuild the public trust about what we're doing here in the u.s. when we think about the diplomatic trust that's been breached, that is the big onus that needs to be repaired. it doesn't seem like before the g-20 that's really going to happen. >> well, not with the russians. it's funny you bring occuup the diplomatics. these nsa programs are extremely unpopular in europe, too. it's caused tension between some of the united states' closest allies. it goes beyond russia. obviously, this is the near-term issue we expect to hear the president sort of justify his r
country on the right track is to send to washington a conservative problem-solving former governor who works well with others to get the results that put our state on the right track. that is in contrast to what we heard from ted cruz last night, the whole don't blink theory. if you reach a compromise, you're somehow chicken and not effective. >> i think lamar alexander has someone in mind when he writes that. >> i think a couple people. >> well, he was somebody in the '80s who governed in tennessee and really was seen as an education reformer, one of the landmark class-size academic papers that's been written was because of a program that he created in trying to reduce class sizes. >> all right. domenico, thank you very much for the first read today. >>> still ahead, celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the historic march on washington get underway in a couple hours. huge crowds expected to gather in our nation's capital for a week-long event. we'll talk with dr. king's oldest son, martin luther king iii will join us live. ♪ turn around ♪ every now and then i get a little
edward snowden. joining me now, "the washington post"'s nia milika henderson. wea this housing market, many questions. quite honestly, when you start talking about broad packages, we know the complexity of the housing market already. but the president wants to see movement by the end of the year. any chance he'll be successful? >> hard to see him being successful. he's right to go out and frame these debates and try to highlight the problems that americans are having in terms of refinancing homes. he said himself, i think, that he could benefit from being able to refinance a mortgage on his house. but it's hard to see any movement on any of these things. i think the president is doing the right thing in terms of trying to frame this debate on his terms. congress is out for the next five weeks. hard to see any movement. >> it's hard to see movement these days, michael, but it's fun fi that jay leno asked president obama about his, quote, bromance with senator john mccain as of late. let me play what was said there. >> you two had that lover's quarrel for a while. now you're best friend

million bail right now in spokane, washington. the other suspect, demetrius glen, also 16, appeared in court yesterday. he turned himself in last week. joining me now, investigative crime reporter and correspondent for "deadline crime" with tamron hall. good to see you there, michelle. >> good to see you, richard. >> they plan on trying both of them as adults. what are the circumstances around that decision? >> you know, i think in this particular case i can only assume. i did just speak with the prosecuting attorneys office. they said adams kinard will appear in court this afternoon first. that's the first thing. the second thing is that i'm sure they're taking into consideration the brutality of this crime, how this veteran was allegedly beat with large flashlights and the manner he was beaten. you have to think that, you know, the victim in this case, he, 88 years old, stood five feet tall, was no threat to anyone, just going to play pool as he normally did and was brutally attacked. that combined with the ages and the past criminal history of these two alleged suspects, again, t
joining the conversation from washington "time" magazine senior correspondent michael crowley. john kerry got these negotiators together in washington last month. he's said that the palestinian president is committed to holding these peace talks with israel. so from your per spektdive, what you know from your sources, why would prime minister netanyahu potentially have put these talks in jeopardy at this stage? >> well, a lot of what happens around the talks -- i mean, we don't know for sure. a lot of it is posturing for domestic audiences. each side does things and reacts to the other side as part of somewhat of a choreographed dance. i think to some degree, you know, you see the settlement announcement around the same time as the prisoner release. that's probably not a coincidence. john kerry said these announcements were largely unsurprising. it might have been a little more than they were anticipating. i think to some degree what's happening here is each side has to show they're going into the negotiations where they're not caving, they're protecting the interests of their people, the
are also watching another event in washington, d.c., where the president will award u.s. army staff sergeant ty carter the medal of honor for his actions while fighting in afghanistan. it will be the fifth living individual who fought in this war. people are saying this is an interesting time situation and that the president is giving out this award in reflection of the war in afghanistan and the continued violence that's spiked right now in iraq and deciding what to do with syria here. >> well, i'm sure this was an event planned well in advance, but it does bring -- >> but timing gives reflection. >> exactly. it does bring into sharp focus the fact that there is no appetite among americans to go back on a third adventure in the middle east. the president, when the time comes for him to communicate, not so much with congress but with the american people, about why he needs to do this action in syria, whatever that action is, he's going to need to message that very carefully to make it clear to americans what the stakes are and for a person who's taken a very long time to act, what w
in washington, d.c., as well. mark, i want to bring you back into this conversation as well and talk about more of the political fallout. we know based on what the president just said a few moments ago that there are going to continue to be conversations between the white house and between congressional leadership as well. short of the president going to the hill and asking members of congress for permission to strike syria, are they going to be pleased? is that essentially what it's going to take to assuage them? >> craig, i don't think anyone's going to be pleased right now, particularly at the moment where everyone is waiting to see what happens. president obama right now has certainly hit a bottom when it comes to his numbers. his overall approval rating was at 44%. that's tied for his lowest in. what's also notable is only 41% approved of his handling of foreign policy. as you mentioned, our poll was conducted before today. it was conducted on august 28th and august 29th. right now there's a sense the american public really hasn't been happy about the rationale, about all the talk that the
in washington identified aqap as a particularly dangerous threat for some time now, a number of years. as you know from this very podium, john brennan, the cia director and the president's counterterrorism and homeland security adviser, spoke specifically about the rising threat from aqap. that's something we've seen in some of the foiled attempts that aqap has been engaged in. and it is -- has been a focus of attention of our national security apparatus for some time. >> again, we're listening as jay carney answers several questions on this latest terror threat as more embassies remain closed throughout the week in parts of the middle east as well as africa. we'll keep you up to date on the latest information as it is updated. meanwhile, the other story far from what we're discussing today but still certainly part of the conversation, the story regarding -- well, still ahead, we're going to take a look at the politics of the terror threat. our first read team says, quote, it was interesting to watch the weekend chatter and see many members of congress and others use the terror warnings to ad
correspondent pete williams. he's in washington. and nbc's ayman mohyeldin in cairo. pete, let's start with you on this latest information on some of the pieces of the puzzle. how did this come about? >> right. the intercept is not -- it's still not clear to us exactly what the communication was, whether it was from the successor to osama bin laden in pakistan directly to the top al qaeda official in yemen or whether it was more of a roundabout relayed communication. in any event, regardless of how it was constructed, it's the wording that so alarmed officials in which the leader of al qaeda in pakistan has basically given the order or approval of what the two are believed to be saying is a significant event, a big terror attack that would have significant strategic consequences, as the way they described it. and that is what has led to all the changes that we've seen in the past several days. >> let me play, pooeete, what congressman peter king said on "morning joe" this morning. >> this one was so precise as to the nature of the attack. there were some dates given in there. the sources were s
amber alerts in oregon and washington state but so far no confirmed sightings of that blue nissan versa or the suspect or the kids. now 16-year-old hannah anderson and her 8-year-old brother ethan have been missing since that fire this past weekend. their mother was killed in the fire. another victim was found in the remains. it could be ethan but at this point the coroner is saying that it is very difficult to make a positive identification. the suspect is james dimaggio. he is a close family friend, was even described as being like an uncle to these kids, but hannah's friends tell us that she felt uncomfortable around dimaggio because he said he had a crush on her. he said if he were her age he would date her. because of all of this information detectives truly do believe that hannah is in grave danger. they are looking at the possibility that they could have been driving north toward the canadian border. as we mentioned, mexican authorities are also aiding in this search so they're looking at that possibility because the home where the fire happened is so close to the mexican border.

hearing in washington the continued comparisons of the mistakes of the past? has that wrongly been processed with what's happening here? >> you bring up a good point. for instance, is it assad or was it a rogue general? could some elements of the rebellion maybe have gotten their hands on some of this? these are the -- that has within been the issue in these intelligence reports is that they don't have the chain of custody. they don't have the chain of custody all the way through, and because of that they can't be 100% certain. i think another way to look at this, tamron, don't forget the intelligence community learned lessons from iraq, too, which means they don't claim anything's 100% anymore. >> right. >> reporter: they don't claim anything is ever a slam dunk because that didn't work out so well for the cia director who went into the oval office on wmds. you have this coupled with an intelligence community that's frankly more honest about caveats than it used to be. >> absolutely. since the president has not determined or decided what the appropriate action should be, i think t
